Bari – A City Worth Exploring at Leisure in Puglia, Italy – Day 2 – Part 2

The Arciconfraternita di San Giuseppe can be found at Via Filippo Corridoni, #20.  It is the only church in Bari where the Holy Mass is celebrated in Latin, normally on Saturdays at 7:15pm.

The Museo Civico was founded in 1913.  In 1977, it was moved to its present location at Strada Sagges, #13, in the building where Gian Domenico Petroni lived and died.  Petroni was a member of the National Parliament, as well as the Mayor of Bari from 1880 to1881.  A monument on the facade of the building pays tribute to him.

The Museo Civico is open on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 10:00am to 6:00pm, and on Fridays and Saturdays from 10:00am to 7:00pm.  It is closed on Tuesdays and Sundays.  Admission costs €5.00.  The museum houses artifacts and displays pertaining to the history of Bari.  It is an interesting way to spend an hour or so, and I recommend taking the time to see it, when visiting the city.

On display in the museum, there is the first book ever printed in Bari, by the French typographer, Gilberto Nehou, in 1535.

The Opera pia Arciconfraternita di Maria Santissima del Carmine is found at Strada del Carmine, #11, and dates from 1561.
